Savannah V. Carter
Before becoming a counselor, I was an educator for eight years. In the classroom, I found myself drawn to spending more time with children that needed a little extra help or support.
Since then, my passion has become working with teens and children to identify and explore fears, by accepting themselves and discovering and creating a path to who they want to become. I work one-on-one with teens that are struggling with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, LGBTQ+, and abuse.
As a counselor, I work hard, alongside my clients, to build a therapeutic relationship through authenticity and empathy. Person Centered Therapy is the lens in which I see all my client, I truly believe people are inherently good. I also adapt, modify, and integrate many other theoretical views to meet the needs of my individual clients. I often times use humor and transparency to create a safe place for people to become their best selves.
As for me, I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 15 years, I have three daughters (that only drive me crazy 28% of the time) and I just recently became a dog mom; anyone that knows me can’t believe this is actually happening. When I need to calm my own fears and anxieties you will find me hiking with my family or paddle boarding in any body of water. I believe self-love, self-acceptance and self-care are keys to creating a balanced and fulfilling life.
